Timestamped Show Notes:
10:00: Geeking out about Wildfire, Wildland Firefighting, the fire seasons, and more.
20:00: Cal-Fire exists because California is so prone to wildfires because they are so big, they are so exposed, they are so dry, and they're so heavily populated. That's why they have such a huge budget and they literally call it Cal-Fire and California manages most of the wildfires themselves, with an impressive Air Force too.
30:00: You want us to go climb the highest peak on the planet? I mean, it's like for sure. It's an endurance feat and all that, but it's not exploratory. It's not really a wilderness experience. Whereas we spent the whole summer in the Pakistani Karakoram, for climbing an uncommon 7000-meter peak.
40:00: We want to buy real stuff from real people. We want to see people utilizing it authentically and well especially when you got some of your documentaries, some of your stories to share too.
51:30: Final Words
Our Final Words of the Show:
The importance of being bold, being safe, and being smart. Think about what you do and the influence you have on those around you. To just be working on creating the kind of world that we want to live in. It's kind of that simple. So that's what I would love to encourage to the listeners.
